Fibre laser provides gap-free tuning

Share this on social media:

SuperK’s Chromatune is a new laser that provides gap-free tuning from 400-1000 nm. Due to its extremely broad tuning range and constant 1 mW output power, the SuperK Chromatuneis ready to cover your applications in microscopy, spectroscopy, fluorescence, lifetime imaging, optical characterisation, and plasmonics and metamaterials.

Chromatune is a fibre laser, which ensures excellent reliability and a lifetime of thousands of hours. It requires no maintenance or service, no alignment or adjustments. It is based on NKT Photnics reliable industrial laser platform. 

The SuperK Chromatune has been designed to be extremely easy to use. But flip it into advanced mode, and you can change the linewidth of the laser, increase the power in different wavelength ranges and automate wavelength sweeps and other functionalities. As standard, the laser runs at quasi-CW MHz rep rates, but you can also change that if you are studying lifetime phenomena. Everything is controlled by our intuitive software interface, but should you need even more control or integration, our free SDK got you covered.
